I have, but more just for fun because it seems like a neat system, and
also of course because everyone keeps saying how great it is.  But not
necessarily to solve a real problem, since uninstalling the odd
package already works fine.  Except that /usr/local/lib fiasco.  If
there are more fiascos in the future I might wind up with nix :)
